the case you want to raise

lumping, wrapped in thick winter jackets
enduring the cold season down to the marrow
only the feeling of excitement delivered warmth

The Best Poem Of Aj Anwar

The Summary Of Rain

if it is about rain
the case you want to raise
suffice it to whisper ‘water' to my ear
chanting about the ocean or hurricane unneeded
let alone the wrath of heaven
for it would probably speak to me more
if you call on the yearning heart
a spatial multiplier between heavy clouds
and the dry cracked land
waiting for the wet descends

[Translated from the Indonesian version]

RINGKASAN HUJAN

kalau itu hujan
yang ingin kau katakan
cukup bisiki aku ‘air'
tak perlu lautan atau badai
apalagi angkara dewa-dewa langit
mungkin akan lebih kena di hatiku
kalau kau katakan soal rindu
perkalian jarak antara segumpal mendung
dan tanah gersang yang merekah
menunggu jatuhnya basah
